Windows 7: Connecting Kindle to computer wifi

Connecting Kindle to computer wifi

I've been trying to connect my kindle to wifi by turning my laptops wifi card into a hotspot. The kindle doesn't support peer-to-peer networks so the ad hoc option obviously failed. However two people where able to make it work on a iMac: Connecting Kindle 3 to a MacBook wifi network - kindle Discussion Forum

by configuring the kindle to these settings:
IP 10.0.2.2
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Router 10.0.2.1
DNS 10.0.2.1

Can this be done on windows 7? If not will it work if I do it on windows server 2008 r2 via creating a dhcp server?

Thank you

hi crysis405, and welcome to sevenforums,

i've never tried doing anything like this, but the free virtual router program may help.

Can it be done from within windows? I don't want to install extra apps especially those I'm not familiar with.

Someone please help. I can't wrap my head around why this works on a Mac but not on a Windows machine. Surely there must be a solution.

Finally found a solution: Windows 7 Tip of the Week: Use Wireless Hosted Networking to Share An Internet Connection Wirelessly

Works like a charm. All you kindle users enjoy
